Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Life becomes a little different in Key Stage 2. It is a great chance for the children to become more independent as they learn new routines. As in Key stage 1, we expect them to work in different social groups and respect the opinions of others. We will also encourage the children to think about the way they like to learn and support them to produce their own ideas in a variety of ways. We will help them every step of the way to learn, be safe and have fun.

Our topics we will cover this year are: The Stone Age, Extreme Survival, Remarkable People, Journey Through Europe and Egyptians. These topics provide a platform for us to link children’s learning in History, Geography, Art, Design and Technology and Science when able. Children will have the opportunity to share learning about these topics at home through topic homework. This is set at the beginning of a half term and allows children to carry out small projects or research at home to support learning in school.

Homework also consists of spellings (which are given out at the start of every half term), rocket words and reading. Our expectation is that all children read to an adult at least 3 times a week, which should be recorded in their reading diary.

Our Year 3 team consists of Miss Jones, Miss Fox, Miss Blakeway, Miss Knowles and Mrs Evans. We are always available to talk through any issues or concerns you may have so please do not hesitate to come and speak to us. Equally, we love to hear exciting news about your child too!

We have so much fun in Year 3!
